Magic Targets  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.0.121
by: neotron [More]

Magic Targets is a simple set of frames that shows the current targets of the members raid or party. It's meant primarily for use in raiding to keep track of all the mobs currently engaged in combat. Feature list:

  • Optionally marks your current target and focus target with green respectively blue arrows.
  • Lists the number of people who's currently targeting each mob.
  • Colors each bar based on target status (crowd controlled, tanked, untanked or idle).
  • Shows the icon(s) of the crowd controll methods a mob is currently affected by and optionally shows a countdown timer for the longest duration remaining crowd control method.
  • Automatically adds new mobs as members of the raid targets them.
  • Automatically removes mobs after when they die or when they haven't been actively targeted by someone, or seen in the combat log, for a small period of time. Crowd controlled mobs are always kept on the list.
  • Uses oRA2 and buff detection (defensive stance, bear form and righteous fury) to determine if a player is a tank.
  • Customizable font and font size, bar texture, color and size, and more.
  • Optionally able to listen to events from Magic Marker to prepopulate the list with mobs, including the assigned crowd controlled methods.
  • Optional tooltip shows mob level and type, health percentage, current target, status and Magic Marker assignment. It also lists all players targeting the mob.

Magic Targets 2.0

MT2 is a major refactoring of the original addon. The layout of the bars is now much more flexible. Not only can you freely decide which data to show on the bars, there are also multiple layouts to choose from. Best of all, the transition to Magic Targets 2 should be transparent. Note that the default layout of Magic Targets 2 is different. If you prefer the Magic Marker 1 layout, go into the configuration options => Bar Labels and select the classic Bar Layout. Comments are welcome!

Configuration and use:

Configuration is done using the Blizzard configuration UI. You can use the FuBar/Minimap button or the slash command /mgt config to open it. To get access to a larger number of fonts and textures you need to install the SharedMedia addons.

Note: The bars are not clickable. Due to the secure templates added in WoW 2.0, this is no longer possible. PvP specific addons get around this limitation by making macros that target players by name. Since NPC names are not unique, this is not a viable solution for Magic Targets.

MT2 is a major refactoring of the original addon. The layout of the bars is now much more flexible. Not only can you freely decide which data to show on the bars, there are also multiple layouts to choose from. Best of all, the transition to Magic Targets 2 should be transparent. Note that the default layout of Magic Targets 2 is different. If you prefer the Magic Marker 1 layout, go into the configuration options => Bar Labels and select the classic Bar Layout. Comments are welcome!

Changes in 79652:

- Fixed detection of warrior tanks when not using oRA2 main tanks (essentially look for a warrior having a shield equipped).
- Added optional timers to crowd control display. Note that due to limitations in the combat log, there's no accurate way to detect when a crowd control is renewed before it expires, so MagicTarget only tracks the initial timer.

- Liblogger No Longer A Fixed Dependency. It Will Still Be Embedded If Found Elsewhere.
- Made The Fubar Plugin Specific To Magictargets To Avoid Issues With Libs.
- Fixed Possible Nil Indexing Error.
- Added Option (On By Default) To Use Class Colors In The Tooltip.

Changes in r77137:

- Fixed bars not hiding when the UI is hidden with Alt-z (LibBars-1.0 issue)

Note: The fix to LibBars-1.0 to allow hiding means that the frames now listen to the UI scale factor. If the bars appear small after updating, simply change the scaling in the bar sizing configuration page.

Hi there, are you able to target through this mod? As that's what I'm looking for.

I want to bind keys to targeting specific mobs within the raid with no need for clicking.

Will I be able to do that?

Thanks

This was all with none of my other addons uploaded yet.

When i turned on my ui addon all i saw was magic targets header across the middle of my screen going passed the edge of my screen on both ends.

Help?
A fix would be nice since I do have the same error

The main issue is that it's not possible to update the threat on mobs somone isn't currently targeting, but then again - no difference from the other data I display. On AoE packs though it means threat won't necessarily be updated.
I once came upon an addon once upon a time that displayed threat bars in a layout similar to this addon's display of HP bars. The way it handled updating the threat info was requiring either targeting as you predict, or mouseover. I guess it can quickly retrieve the threat info upon mouseover of the mobs. I would link you to the addon if I could recall exactly what it was called.

Edit: Found it: Forsaken Threat Meter

I've noticed it's been several months since Neotron has posted or updated the addon but it works great anyway.

If I have any luck I'll post.

Its cause of the secure frames in combat, you can't add/remove frames freely in combat (to prevent stuff like the old emergencymonitor/decursive style addons)
